Read my signature quote below - it applies very well.
    LOL!!! Jeez, I would have to fall pretty far to want Obama care!!! Is that your lame argument, that this extremely unlikely scenario would have to occur for Obama care to even look desirable? Wow, I'd win the lottery before all that happened. That's fantastic, you made my argument for me. So what do you figure, we should give up our freedom of choice in the very unlikely event that this happens? Here's a little hint, I'd still choose freedom over government mandates. Oh boy, that's a good one.

    BTW, that quote is for weak minded fools.

    Um, no. You've got partisanship politics confused with freedom. Right now, today, you and every other American have more rights than the American people as a whole have ever had.
    Your ignorance is showing.

    Y'know, Buckley and Goldwater were quite conservative...but the meaning of 'conservative' has changed greatly from what it once was. In fact, Obamacare itself was an invention by the VERY conservative Heritage Foundation...
    Gee, it was? They worked with Obama on it? He had their full support? Tell me, what did they do to promote Obamacare? I'm sure you can come up with pages and pages of conservative organizations supporting Obamacare, specifically. (I won't be holding my breath waiting for you).

    Obamacare is quite conservative in that we ALL need health care sooner or later - every single one of us
    Huh??? Quite conservative? Now showing that you have no idea what conservative values are. "Obamacare is quite conservative"-- Glen Contrarian 6/08/15

    Do you lefties have no shame? Is there anything you won't say, no matter how ignorant and embarrassing your statement is?
    I would say that most conservatives today really don't know the meaning of 'conservative' - otherwise, why would they have opposed taking away tax breaks from corporations outsourcing jobs overseas?
    LOL, like you do!

    In other words, guy, 'freedom' sounds really nice...until you start realizing that your personal idea of 'freedom' really sucks for those who ain't already rich.
    Yeah, that Freedom crap isn't all it's cracked up to be. Big government, taking your earnings, mandating your life, killing the economy -- that's where it's at! We should all want that. Again, you big government freaks will say anything. How do you look yourselves in the mirror?

    That's funny, I didn't post anything of the sort. You need to comprehend a little better... or at all.

    CRUE CAB didn't make that distinction. Even if Cuba had a more significant regime change he would still be against it. His argument is completely irrational.

    And the key ingredient you are missing here is that normalization of relations means regime change in Cuba.

    I'm not arguing for or against him... but let him speak to his own position.

    there's absolutely no evidence of that being true at all...

    Nah.. But my quote was in reference to how he was saying we need to remember how Cuba had missiles off our coast so we best not forget our history... as an excuse to not normalize relations with Cuba.
